Is that the one they play on the radio? I think I have only heard a live version.

Also from Wikipedia:

[edit] Train Kept A-Rollin'
Tiny Bradshaw's 1951 R&B classic, already turned into a rock song by The Rock and Roll Trio (Johnny and Dorsey Burnette and Paul Burlison) (1956) and updated by the The Yardbirds in a 1965 raw British blues version, after whom Aerosmith modeled their version. In the band's early days, it was their signature, show-stopping song, and is still used to end their concerts today. Despite the band's opposition, Douglas put in echo and recorded crowd noises (from the Concert for Bangla Desh) around halfway through to give it a live feel, fading into the next song's synthesized blowing wind/acoustic guitar entrance.

Uh-oh, SDH! If they indeed "modeled" it after them, it's a COVER with cap C...

No one is going to mention Richard Thompson's cover of Britney's "Oops! I did it again."? Oh well, guess I'll go listen to an old version of Matty Groves....
